The balance of the jacket seems off. The jacket is higher in the back then in the front in most of the photos. There appears to be a considerable gap between your bum and the bottom of your jacket as well. You should have your tailor fix this.

4. Shoes: point well taken. Tuck in shoelaces next time .
